Forest Green player fines to be donated to Cotswold Care Hospice
FOREST Green Rovers boss Ady Pennock is spreading a bit of Christmas charity by donating fines incurred by players to the Cotswold Care Hospice.
The Minchinhampton charity, which provides care for people living with or affected by a life limiting illness, has been chosen as FGR’s charity of the season.
Pennock said: “We have a fining system for things like turning up late to training or receiving a yellow card. Fines will be added up and donated.
"I lost a friend to cancer last year, so this charity is very close to my heart.”
Community and events managers Laura Coakley and Julia Mundell were at the New Lawn to meet the management and players today, Thursday.
There will be a bucket collection at the New Lawn during Rovers’ clash against Aldershot Town on Boxing Day.
Jules Eaton, chief executive of Cotswold Care Hospice, said: "We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful football club on our doorstep, one that punches above its weight on the pitch and in the community.
"All proceeds raised by Forest Green fans will go directly to supporting people here in our community when they need it most."
